Purse

Does anyone know of any place that might sell a purse similar to this one?



I bought several of these a few years ago via House and Hobby, but sadly the zips keep breaking on them and I'm running out of spares. I really like having the separate compartments for the coins, but haven't managed to find anything close to this design in the shops so far.

Re: Purse

If you know the brand, you could contact the manufacturer?

Not looked in the shops but if you search for ‘porte monnaie / trieur de pièces’ there are a few options on amazon fr.

Re: Purse

Oooh. I assume the remote and the batteries are for the purse. You you scan the till display and the right amount of change pops out?

When I was a kid I wanted one of those things that bus conductors* had; a sort of metal doodad with spring loaded slots full of coins.

*For you younger folks, a bus conductor was a human who came around and sold you your bus ticket. On telly, they were depicted as pretty "clippy" girls, but in my world, they tended to be grumpy old bastards who hated kids (or most likely their job and everyone they had to deal with)

I wish mirfield.

The remote is for the burglar alarm which has the habit of going off whenever it feels like, even though it's not actually set. Hubby says it happens when the batteries get low - it thinks it's being tampered with and goes off. Unfortunately it's somewhat LOUD and I have to run for the control asap to shut it off before I'm permanently deafened. Did it to me 3 times last week so I took to carrying the remote around with me. It's nearly always me it blasts because it rarely goes off when hubby's home of course. Bloody thing. I'm just waiting for the point when it goes off in the wee small hours of the morning. Guess who's going to get kicked out of bed to deal with it then.

Re: Purse

Now that's segregation if I ever seen it!
And segregation with a broken zipper.

Wouldn't surprise that some lobby has forced the EU to put a ban on it.

Re: Purse

Swears loudly. Neither France or Germany will deliver these to Switzerland. Why the F word not?

Think a lot of places are a bit wary of shipping to Switzerland since the beginning of the year in case they need to bugger about with MwSt at their end.

You can get it shipped to somewhere like Las Burg in Lörrach near Basel. I guess Konstanz will have something similar, if that's nearer.

Re: Purse

UK won't ship either. Looks like plan B may be needed. One of hubby's work colleagues lives in France.

I found a couple of the brand LoLuna on the .fr site which will ship to Switzerland that’s why I posted that as an option.
I got all the way to the checkout where it asked for the credit card details but didn’t proceed any further.

Re: Purse

Did you check AliExpress?

This looks quite similar: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-...AbTest=ae803_5

But they probably have models closer to what you want.

Re: Purse

Yeah, saw that on the various Amazon sites as well. Might be one to go for since it's Swiss based. Thanks curley.

Yes. I've got them for 3 different currencies: French, UK and Swiss. Want one for an upcoming trip to the States as well.

Definitely good for old people who have eye problems
